BGOUG15: JSON support in MySQL 5.7

  1. 1. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. | JSON Support in MySQL 5.7 Georgi “Joro” Kodinov Team lead, MySQL server general team
  2. 2. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Agenda 2  The new JSON data type  Inlined JSON path expressions  The new JSON functions  Indexing JSON data
  3. 3. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. CREATE TABLE employees (data JSON); INSERT INTO employees VALUES ('{"id": 1, "name": "Jane"}'), ('{"id": 2, "name": "Joe"}'); SELECT * FROM employees; +-------------------------------------+ | data | +-------------------------------------+ | {"id": 1, "name": "Jane"} | | {"id": 2, "name": "Joe"} | +-------------------------------------+ • Validation on INSERT • No reparsing on SELECT • Dictionary of fields • Fields are sorted • Can compare JSON/SQL • Can convert JSON/SQL • Supports all native JSON datatypes • Also supports date, time, timestamp etc. 3 The New JSON Datatype
  4. 4. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. JSON vs TEXT columns Pros Cons JSON • Validate once • Fast access • Can update in-place • Slower to insert • Unreadable as is • Sets certain limitations on JSON TEXT • Fast to insert • Human readable • Requires manual validation • Requires manual parsing • Harder to update 4
  5. 5. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Beware: SQL vs JSON comparisons ! 5 SQL JSON create table t1 (data json); create table t2 ( id integer, data varchar(20)); insert into t1 values ('{ "id": 1, "data": "1" }'), ('{ "id": 2, "data": "3" }'); insert into t2 values (1, '1'), (2, '3'); select count(*) from t1 where data->'$.id' = data->'$.data'; select count(*) from t2 where id = data; 0 rows ! 1 row !
  6. 6. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Agenda 6  The new JSON data type  Inlined JSON path expressions  The new JSON functions  Indexing JSON data
  7. 7. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Inlined JSON Path Expressions • <field>->'<JSON path expression>' e.g. data->'$.some.key[3].from.doc' • Syntax sugar over JSON_EXTRACT function • SELECT * FROM employees WHERE data->'$.id'= 2; • ALTER … ADD COLUMN id INT AS (data->'$.id') … • CREATE VIEW .. AS SELECT data->'$.id', data->'$.name' FROM … • UPDATE employees SET data->'$.name'=‘John' WHERE … Not yet!
  8. 8. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Limitations of Inlined JSON Path Expressions Inlined JSON path JSON_EXTRACT() Data source Field Any JSON value Path expression SQL Constant SQL Expression # of expressions One Multiple
  9. 9. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Supported JSON Paths [[[database.]table.]column]$<path spec> Expression Example [ [ [database.] table.] field]$ db.phonebook.data$ $ Current document’s root $.identifier $.user.address.street [array] $.user.addresses[2].street .* and [*] $.user.addresses[*].street ** $.user**.phone Not yet!

  11. 11. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. New functions to handle JSON data Example Result SELECT JSON_VALID('{ "a":1 }'); 1 SELECT JSON_TYPE('[ 1, 2, 3 ]'); ARRAY SELECT JSON_KEYS('{ "a":1, "b": 2 }'); ["a", "b"] SELECT JSON_LENGTH('[ 1, 2, 3 ]'); 3 SELECT JSON_DEPTH('{ "a":{ "c": 1 }, "b": 2 }'); 3 11 Information
  12. 12. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. New functions to handle JSON data Example Result SELECT JSON_REMOVE('{ "a":1, "b": 2 }', '$.a'); {"b": 2} SELECT JSON_ARRAY_APPEND('[1,[2,3],4]', '$[1]', 5); [1, [2, 3, 5], 4] SELECT JSON_SET('{ "a":1 }', '$.c', 3); {"a": 1, “c": 3} SELECT JSON_INSERT('{ "a":1 }', '$.b', 4); {"a": 1, "b": 4} SELECT JSON_REPLACE('{ "a":1, "b": 2 }', '$.b', 3); {"a": 1, "b": 3} SELECT JSON_MERGE('{ "a": 1 }', '{"b":2}'); {"a": 1, "b": 2} SELECT JSON_UNQUOTE('"abc"'); abc 12 Modification
  13. 13. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. New functions to handle JSON data Example Result SELECT JSON_ARRAY(1, '2', null, true); [1, "2", null, true] SELECT JSON_OBJECT(1, 2, '3', true); {"1": 2, "3": true} SELECT JSON_QUOTE('"null"'); ""null"" 13 Create JSON objects
  14. 14. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. New functions to handle JSON data Example Result SELECT JSON_CONTAINS_PATH( '{ "a":{ "c": 1 }, "b": 2 }', 'one', '$.a.c'); 1 SELECT JSON_CONTAINS( '{"a": 1, "b": "2" }', '1', '$.a'); 1 SELECT JSON_EXTRACT('{"a": 1, "n": { "b": 2}}', '$.n'); {"b": 2} SELECT JSON_SEARCH( '{"a": "1", "b": "2" }', 'one', 2); "$.b" 14 Search in JSON data

  16. 16. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Agenda 16  The new JSON data type  Inlined JSON path expressions  The new JSON functions  Indexing JSON data
  17. 17. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Indexing JSON Data • Use Functional Indexes – Both STORED and VIRTUAL types are supported • Examples: – CREATE TABLE t1 ( data JSON, id INTEGER AS (JSON_EXTRACT(data,"$.id")) STORED, PRIMARY KEY(id)); – CREATE TABLE t2 ( data JSON, id INTEGER AS (JSON_EXTRACT(data,"$.id")) VIRTUAL, KEY(id)); 17
  18. 18. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Indexing JSON: STORED vs VIRTUAL columns Pros Cons STORED • Can be primary key too • All index types supported • Looks like a normal field • Slow ALTER TABLE • Takes space on disk VIRTUAL • Instant ALTER TABLE • Faster INSERT • Looks like a normal field • Secondary key only • BTREE index only 18
  19. 19. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. How do you tell if an JSON index is used ? > EXPLAIN SELECT data FROM t1 WHERE JSON_EXTRACT(data,"$.series") BETWEEN 3 AND 5; +----+----------------+--------+---------------+--------+…+------------------------------+ | id | select_type | table | partitions | type | | Extra | +----+----------------+--------+---------------+--------+…+------------------------------+ | 1 | SIMPLE | t1 | NULL | range | | Using index condition | +----+----------------+--------+---------------+--------+…+------------------------------+ 19
  20. 20. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Or this way …. 20
  21. 21. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Or maybe this way ? 21 ALTER TABLE features ADD feature_type VARCHAR(30) AS (feature->"$.type") VIRTUAL; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.01 sec) Records: 0 Duplicates: 0 Warnings: 0 ALTER TABLE features ADD INDEX (feature_type); Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.73 sec) Records: 0 Duplicates: 0 Warnings: 0 SELECT DISTINCT feature_type FROM features; +-------------------+ | feature_type | +-------------------+ | "Feature" | +-------------------+ 1 row in set (0.06 sec) From table scan on 206K documents to index scan on 206K materialized values Down from 1.25s ! Meta data change only (FAST). Does not need to touch table. Online CREATE INDEX ! No rows were modified.
  22. 22. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Roadmap • Online alter for virtual columns • Advanced JSON functions • In-place update of JSON/BLOB • Full text and GIS index on virtual columns • Improved performance through condition pushdown 22
